Take the first exit at the next roundabout (after 300 yards) into Northgate Street. At the second set of traffic lights (T – Junction), turn left into Mustow Street and first left into Cotton Lane, past the Hawkes garage and the Drive Car Showroom.

About The Stadium:
There are few more picturesque Non League grounds than Ram Meadow, with its mix of old wooden stands and the cathedral looming down in the distance.  Time may be running out for the club as they look for a new location as they are not able to redevelop the grounds.

Three sides of the ground have basic small covered stands – the two at either end are terraced whilst on the east side of the ground it is a simple two stepped wooden bench seating.  On the other side of the ground is a unique, but rather small main stand that is used by officials of both teams.  Next to this are the club offices and club house with a decent size bar, big screen TV’s and food serving area.
